The Chicago Blackhawks have traded Patrick Sharp and Stephen Johns to the Dallas Stars in exchange for Trevor Daley and Ryan Garbutt. The Blackhawks confirmed the deal on Twitter and the team’s official website.

"On behalf of the entire Blackhawks organization, I'd like to thank Patrick for all that he helped our franchise accomplish during his time in Chicago, especially serving an integral role in bringing us three Stanley Cup championships,” Blackhawks general manager Stan Bowman said in a press release.

“He was one of our leaders on the ice, most notably as an alternate captain for several seasons, as well as off the ice with his countless contributions and volunteer work with team partners, sponsors and Blackhawks fans everywhere. He will forever be a Blackhawk and we wish him and his family nothing but the best in Dallas and beyond."

Sharp, 33, had been with the Blackhawks since 2005 and helped the team win Stanley Cups in 2010, 2013 and 2015. In 679 games for Chicago, he had a total of 239 goals and 272 assists, 16 goals and 27 assists in the just-ended season.
